Nintendo dropped a ton of announcements in their most recent Direct presentation, including shockers like DOOM & Wolfenstein II coming to the Switch! We talk about the big news that was revealed and our reactions to it.
Most of this episode is all about Destiny 2. Bungie has truly delivered on a sequel to 2014’s divisive online shooter, and we give our spoiler-free impressions now that we’ve had a couple weeks with the game.
This week Bobby Pauls (a.k.a. The Nintendo Guru) joins the podcast to talk about our Top 5 Co-Op Games. What makes a good cooperative gaming experience? Which games have stood out to us over the years? We also discuss Mario + Rabbids, Zelda, Metroid, Destiny, and a bunch of other games.
Derek Tigue was unable to join us due to Hurricane Irma. He will be ready to jump back in next week to talk about Destiny 2!
One of this year’s biggest (and most pleasant) surprises has arrived in the form of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Ubisoft & Nintendo have partnered up for something truly special, so we talk about our first impressions after a few hours with the game.
